Yes. The phases of the moon aren't based on the size of the moon. Phases are based on the position of the moon in relation to the sun.

From Ganymede, an observer would see "phases of Jupiter" what would similar to - although vastly more impressive! - than the phases of the Moon that we see from Earth. However, it wouldn't be the SAME phases that we see from here on Earth.

Yes, it does. An observer on the earth side of the moon would notice the earth going through phases similar to the moon's, and the phases would take a lunar cycle to complete. However, when it is full moon to us, it would be 'new earth' to the lunar observer. When it is new moon for us, lunar observers would be treated to a full earth.
